Mr. Speaker, I have yet another petition from the good and concerned citizens of the province of Nova Scotia. In June of 1996 the Prime Minister of Canada announced that he would work toward diverting the Sable Island gas pipeline to Quebec City. It is unacceptable for the Prime Minister to decide the destination of Nova Scotia's natural gas without consulting Nova Scotians. Nova Scotians assert their right to control the destination of Sable Island gas and demand the federal cease tampering with this issue.
In the House of Commons on March 5th, 1997. See this statement in context.
